Youth Friendly Health Centre "ATIS", through its work, managed to establish itself as an important resource at the community level regarding the identification, qualified assistance and maintaining contacts with children and adolescents at risk, representing at the same time, an open gate for child or young person in difficulty to other specialized services both governmental and nongovernmental. The most important conclusion that we realize daily, is that all providing services organizations must coexist in harmony and work within a viable partnership in order to be effective, and the interests of the beneficiaries are the priority.
